Christmas in July at Just Scrappin'

There is still time to jump in on the Christmas in July challenge that I am hosting at Just Scrappin'!!! It is a 3 week long challenge to help us get started on our Christmas cards for the season - yeah I know it is way early but this year is just flying by so fast already, if I don't get started now I will not have cards done by then!!!!

So my week 1 challenge was fairly easy. I wanted the girls to create 2 cards using chipboard - no other restrictions as long as they were Christmas themed and had some chipboard on them somewhere.

Here are the girls submissions:

I decided I was going to do a prize for this round as well as the grand prize. The winner for round 1 was Ziggy - I loaded all the girls names who submitted work for round 1 and let random.org choose the winner for me - there was no way I could judge these!!!!

There were 8 items in your list. Here they are in random order:

1. Zig
2. Tracyj
3. Cristal
4. Sandra
5. Cherrie

Really nice cards! Love the prizes also :-)


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
